Tuesday Turn About #176 Holiday Inspiration

Sharing easy, creative and festive holiday inspiration for the upcoming holiday season! Tuesday Turn About Link Party #176 Holiday Inspiration

Hi Friends and Happy Election Day! I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful week!

Here in Connecticut, mother nature has been a little mixed up. Over the weekend, it was warm and humid. My brother actually turned on his air conditioning! Then today, it was cold and blustery…feeling more like December. It feels like it’s gone from summer to winter in a day!

While I am not a fan of winter weather, I am looking forward to being cozy and all of the sights, sounds, scents, tastes, and feels that the upcoming holiday season will bring.

To get us in the spirit of the season, I am sharing FOUR amazing features that will give you a big dose of inspiration to get you and your home ready for the holiday season.

Let’s get this party started!

Be sure to head over to My Wee Abode and Reinvented Delaware to check out EIGHT additional features from Tuesday Turn About! If you haven’t been featured at My Family Thyme this week, you may have been featured there!

Before we look at the features for this week, let’s get a new blogging tip!

Julie’s Blogging Tip

This week’s tip is probably a ‘rerun’, but I really cannot stress this enough.

When I first started using a DSLR camera, to say it was a steep learning curve is an understatement. I had SO much to learn, and still do… darn those rhinestone embellishments!

But, one key to getting better at snapping a picture is having a friend (blogging or otherwise) that is (gently) honest. I am blessed and have several of these people in my life. Over the last 6 years, I’ve gone to those friends (and family members) and asked them for their honest opinion about images I have taken. It can be exasperating at times, but it helps me persevere, fine tune my skills, and make me a better photographer!

Are you looking for an easy, inexpensive winter decoration? Anna from Sky Lark House shared these gorgeous Easy Paper Snowflakes. I love how simple they are to make, yet they are so beautiful. This seasonal craft would make a great decoration, garland, ornament or gift embellishment. I can’t wait to make a few!

Light Fixture Thrift Flip

I love entertaining for the holidays and try to do little, inexpensive updates around the house before I start my holiday decorating. This Light Fixture Thrift Flip from Maria at Pure Happy Home is such an inspiring project. I am so amazed at Maria’s creativity and talent to transform this thrift store light fixture from drab to fab!
